This weekend promises to be exciting, and busy...First is the Southern California Writer's Conference, beginning Friday, which is always a fun and irreverent couple of days, and a great spot for connecting in the world of publishing, and writing. I'll be on a couple of panels, as well as meeting with writers to discuss their works-in-progress, which is usually my favorite part of the weekend.
On Valentine's Day Sunday, right after a round-table discussion with other editors and publishers, I'll try to get up to Mysterious Galaxy bookstore in time to see my friend Joan Brady, who will be signing her newest book, The Ghost of Mt Soledad
Monday evening is the launch of the new anthology from San Diego Writers, Ink, which I co-edited with Roger Aplon, A Year in Ink, volume 3
A movie I've been anticipating also opens this week: Creation, about the life and work of Charles Darwin. I was afraid I wouldn't get the chance to see it here in San Diego (isn't it amazing that modern politics could make a 150 year old idea controversial?), but it opens Friday at the Landmark Theaters in La Jolla.
That's without even mentioning my own Valentine, my wonderful husband Russel--who will be busy with teaching and boatwork--somehow we'll find time for a romantic dinner!
